    Here is what is in Toontown:

    Chip 'n Dale Treehouse (opened 1993) A treehouse based on Chip 'n Dale.
    Donald's Boat (opened 1993) A large landed boat such as Donald Duck might have. It is named Miss Daisy after Daisy Duck. Gadget's Go Coaster (opened 1993) A roller coaster constructed to appear as if it had been pieced together from human objects by the character Gadget from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers.
    Goofy's Playhouse (opened 2006) A playground for kids based on Goofy's house (which used to be a bouncehouse).
    Mickey's House and Meet Mickey (opened 1993) Mickey's house. At the end the guests enter his "movie barn", where they have an opportunity to meet with him.
    Minnie's House (opened 1993) Minnie's house, where guests could meet Minnie Mouse herself until 2004, when visitors can meet her strolling around Mickey's Toontown.
    Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin (opened 1994) A combination of the standard dark ride and the Mad Tea Party. Guests ride in a car resembling Benny the Taxi from Who Framed Roger Rabbit, named Lenny, and travel through a storyline that somewhat resembles that of the film.


    I like it better because it actually looks like the town where Mickey and Minnie live rather than a Fair.

    I hope that helps. I've been to Disneyland a lot more than I've been to WDW. So if you need more advice let me know!
    Thanks again.

    It's the theatre where a lot of Disney Movies premiered. It's near the Chinese Theatre where all of the stars are. I think they usually have a Disney movie playing there.

    I just checked out the website The El Capitan Theatre -- The Official Home Page and it says that Pinocchio is playing right now. I also saw something about having breakfast with Mickey and Minnie on Saturdays and Sundays before watching the 10am show. There is a Disney's Soda Fountain and Studio Store there as well. Sounds cool.

    Last time I went there there was just a Disney Store next to it!

    and I posted this on the wrong thread. Have you read the thread Big People Problems under special needs? Anyhow, I'll re-post, since my fever is still interfering with my ability to post correctly.

    Oh Tiff, so happy you are getting to go. Sure hope you get the 2 day hopper. We've tried to do it in a day, it is just to difficult to get it all in and we wound up upgrading the ticket to a two day, that way you can enjoy yourself.

    I love the Small World so much more at Disneyland!

    And here is a link to all Ears that may help you with your other concerns.
    Remember if you are in doubt ask a CM and they will take you off stage for demo seating, out of view from all. This All Ears site also links to Pass Porters book. WDW At Large - One Size Does Not Fit All!

    There is plenty to do in that area. We slept on the Queen Mary and ate there too. Drove to Newport Beach. Saw the Stars, remember to look at the people looking at the stars, it is funny.

    DH and I have yet to take our kids to Disneyland, it is still on our to do list, I best hurry. Can't wait to hear details of your plans and trip.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Tiff,

    During the week the parks are relatively crowd free so wait times should be low. However if you are there on a week-end crowds will be heavy. Disneyland relies on "locals" for most of their business.

    If it is raining several rides will not be operating such as the tea cups (no roof) or Alice (parts of it go outside).
